All the Verizon Wireless fans in the audience got all excited when the mobile operator announced that they’d be picking up the LG Voyager. As a significant upgrade over the already popular LG enV, the Voyager was supposed to be Verizon’s answer to the iPhone. And then it got hit with all sorts of problems right out of the gate.
Early adopters of the Verizon Voyager suffered all sorts of growing pains and woes, hitting one snag after another until they just weren’t pleased with their new touchscreen-touting handset. Thankfully, the team at Verizon and LG have quickly thrown together a firmware update that addresses a large number of these issues.
The bad news is that this firmware is not available over the air nor is it available for self-upgrading. Instead, you have to physically make your way over to a Verizon location. Sucks.
